    Ferraris knew Saturn was going to be there they stayed home. Also passed a C6 several times in a 20 minute stint so I didn't count it. There's reasons I'm the slow guy on the team.

    That "gravel" seems more like river bottom so there is a fair amount of sand in it - most of it was put down on Wednesday this week. I'm actually in one of those pictures lol. I was hoping for some pea gravel. As it is now I will also be bringing boards to put on top to cut down on the sand getting on everything that invariably drags the ground over the weekend.

    My team’s first race was the ChumpCar 25:25:25 at Nelson in 2011. None of us had any road racing experience at that time. Good times.

    All I know is the mighty Saturn was running 3rd in 2013 at 12.5 hours when the power steering pulley broke. We ain’t runnin that no mo so y’all better watch out. And we got a Superbird wing so look out! It will be the fastest Saturn out there.
  6. I agree the points matter. However for some reason the E30 I was driving at Gingerman race in 2015 got protested and we were dq’d out of P3 because of unclaimed 4.10 gear (see RacerX post). Granted that was three years ago but I lived an experience that does not align with your “always” comment. I really think we consider fixing this (after having rules clear) by having online access to every TCV so people who want to police can do it before the race not after. Also review of all cars raced through the year could help root out inconsistencies whatever the reason

    From the supps page "Headlights. This is an overnight 24-hour race, you will need your lights. All cars must have their headlights installed and turned on by 5:00pm Saturday." It's not dark at 8:30 PM at this time of year in NE Ohio. Any chance we can change this to 8 PM? I would prefer to not drag the lights through the wind for 3-4 hours before I need them.

    Off the corner of the tech shed is a portable bathroom trailer are there showers in there?

    Understood no issues- you control the horizontal.... and the vertical!

    Bill, I disagree with your assessment. As memory serves the section north of the tech shed had cars and trailers in it every time we were there in the past. At the 2013 event I'm thinking the battery truck took a little space in that section but the rest was teams. The access road that runs north-south in the center of the red zone would be the end line.

    What we experienced last week was as dark as it will get. I've heard more than once that portable light towers are going to be there. Maybe someone can sweet talk ChampCar or the track management to put one in proximity to the kink.

    As of last night there are some working lights over the pit area and front straight.
  13. Intriguing. OK so what else is getting in the way of running one of these in endurance races? What's going to break before 24 hours of racing? Any issues with the L98 like oil starvation, valve train failure? What about all those u-joints? The color makes this one though.
  14. When questions come up about an income statement or balance sheet I expect this kind of detail in the answer. It's good thanks
  15. That is an example of what I was saying - those things would be not $ and just passed along to participants
